Chanler's position as a Sachem was the position of Chief in the Algonquin tribe. I have no details as to how or why he was chosen to represent the band or tribe. But he did step down in 1875 due too declining health.

His censure on May14, 1866 stemmed from calling members of the House "malignant and mischievious" and certain acts of Congress "wicked and revolutionary". These certain acts are some of those vetoed by President Johnson.

I don't think he had a link to the Algonquin - sachem is the word the Tammany Society used for their boss, as he was "chief" of the organization. Tammany was a chief in the Delaware tribe.

The house where Chanler died, Rokeby, is still in the possession of his descendants. I went there once. It's a grand place.
